FFAStrans is an unattended Windows tool aimed at broadcasters and video professionals for automatic transcoding of media files through drop folders. It's based on FFMpeg and relies on AviSynth for filters. Also it's one of the few free tools which supports multiple watch folder with separate transcoding configurations. It's best compared with the likes of Telestreams Episode and Vantage, Harmonics ProCoder, Digital Rapids Transcode Manager, Adobe Media Encoder, Amberfin iCR etc. FFAStrans is targeted at those with lots of different media formats coming from lots of different places and wants the transcoding process done automatically. FFAStrans is created by Steinar Apalnes.
